Notes

Phil's amp fails, forcing an unscheduled acoustic set to close the show with. Jerry plays electric guitar for some of the acoustic set. This is also the day that the Dead were busted by the New Orleans police before the show, prompting some appropriate stage banter. The recording was normalized with Sound Forge, which was also used to remove a few small pops.

Excellent, off-the-cuff show. They really made the best of a bad day. I wonder what it would be like to have this as your only or main Dead tape!

Subject: Great 2nd Set !!
... and it's all thanks to Phil's amp blowing? Wow!

Pig on Katie Mae, Jerry on Little Sadie and Been All Around this World, and Bobby on Long Black Limonsine, Seasons of the Heart, Saw Mill and Bound In Memories.

Shows how Pig was the Soul and Blues of the Dead while Jerry was good at Bluegrass and Bobby at country.

Not a bad 1st set either - with Pig on Big Boss Man and Hard to Handle.

Good Cold Rain and Snow too.

Subject: nice early
too bad phils bass broke, missed out on a second electric set, the acoustic stuff was nice however. sounded like they were gonna play uncle johns after Katie Mae, no dice though, cumberland is good despite some confusion over lyrics on bobbys part. morning dew, masons, hard to handle stand out, everything else is up to par. good show overall

this set by the dead is SO.... DEAD, like this is what it is ALL about, if you know what i mean -- this is the essential experience of an early dead show. there is loads of great banter about the sound system.... the recording is TOPS, and they play just great!

a DNM (do not miss this shit..... i did, until today!)

The Band was busted prior to this show and then Phil's amp fails after the first set. The band rolls with it and plays a nice acoustic set. Two weeks later they make the acoustic set part of the normal show. Thanks New Orleans finest!

The show is of course not the best. The stage bantor is very interesting and the acoustic set is unique.
